GEN. JAS. A.WALKER,
Of Wythe County.
THURSDAY, JL'LY 2S, 1S98.
THE OUTLOOK IN VIRGINIA.
All the indications point to the election
of a solid Democratic Congressional dele?
gation in the Stale next November. Har?
mony reigns in the Democratc ranks while
the Republicans are wrangling and discor?
dant. Hanna will no doubt do his best
to harmonize differences and bring order
out of confusion but he has a hard task
before him and his success is likely to be
only partial. The war is not going to help
the Republicans in Virginia this year,
Our people are not divided on that
question. After the war, important ques?
tions may arise for Congressional action.
It is felt to be necessary that Virginia
Bhould be correctly represented when
those questions come up for decieion.
The next House of Representatives ought
to be made Democratic. Otherwise the
voice of the Democracy will have little in?
fluence in shaping the future policy of the
government. The executive power is in
the hands of a Republican. The Senate
may also be dominated by the Republican
party. Therefore, it is of the last impor?
tance that Democrats shall control the
House. In order to accomplish this re?
sult, Virginia must do her whole duty and
elect a solid Democratic delegation next
We would a?k the News what the Dem?
ocratic party has done since the election of
1S9G to give it more strength in Virgin?
ia, or that will entitle it to a solid Con?
gressional delegation from the State? The
News is mistaken if it thinks there is per?
fect harmony in the Democratic ranks.
In the Tenth District there is a considera?
ble amount of discord. It is also mistaken
in its assertion that the Republicans are
wrangling and discordant. Republican
leaders may have personal dilferences, bat
the solid Republican vote is standing by
the President, and that vote ought to be,
and will be, cast for Republican candidates
who will sustain the Administration. The
war may not help the Republicans in Vir?
ginia but it ought to hurt the Democratic
candidates for Congress, most of whom,
by their votes in Congress, at the last ses?
sion ehowed that they were radically wrong
on war measures. They voted for the
recognition of Cuban independence and
for a recognition of the insurgent govern?
ment. This the News now admits waE
wrong. They also voted against the war
revenue bill, because it did not provide for
the free coinage of silver and for the in
Halation of the paper currency. In other
words they voted against the only meas?
ure that has been passed to raise money
for carrying on the war.
The very fact that: "After the war,
important queetions may arise for Con?
gressional action," is the most sul>stantial
reason why the House of Representatives
sliold be Republican and in accord witli
the Administration. The voice of the
Democratic representatives has so far been
unwisely used in its effort to shape the
war policy, as the intelligent Democratic
press, in some particulars, is forced to ad?
mit. What reason have the people to be?
lieve that the Democrats if in control ol
the next House of Representatives would
not be more unwise and partisan than the
Democratic representatives of the present
Can Shafter Spell ?
It is said that some of the literary critics
of the red tape order in Washington eriti
icise General Shafter's dispatches as lack?
ing in literary finish. They have made
the astounding discovery that there are
some words in the English language that
General Shafter cannot spell. Well, il
that be true, what of it? He was sent to
Cuba not to spell but to fight, and he has
proved that he knows his business. This
reminds us of an anecdote of the Revolu?
tion. The British Colonel, Tarleton, was
ridiculing Colonel Washington in the pres?
ence of an American lady, saying, "I un?
derstand that Colonel Washington cannot
even write his own name." The lady,
pointing to a scar on Tarleton's hand, re?
torted, "I see he can make his mark."
Shafter has made his mark at Santiago
and has written his name in the country's
history. He is not a West Pointer, and
that fact may partially account for the
criticism, but it is much to his credit that
he has fought his way up to his present
command without the advantage of a mil?
itary education. The truth is that there
is in the American character such an ap?
titude for war that it only needs an oppor?
tunity to display itself. Some of the most
successful and brilliant officers in the Civil
War on both sides had no previous mili?
tary training. They learned the art of
war in the school of real war. Look at
the Rough Riders. Some of them are cul?
tured and polished men of society of the
East; some of them rough cowboys and
frontiersmen from the West; but the men
of both classes proved themselves to be
heroes at Santiago. General Shafter is by
no means illiterate. He received his edu-1
cation in a Western college, but even if he
were illiterate, as his critics pretend, his
countrymen would not think the less of j
him. When we are looking for a general,
one who knows how to fight is preferred j
to one who knows the dictionary by
heart. ?Lynchburg News.
We are glad to see the News speak in
euch terms of praise of General Shafter.
We go even further than the News and
give it as our opinion that Shafter is a
military genius. If he planned and exe?
cuted the campaign at Santiago he is cer?
tainly a man of great ability in military af?
fairs. If ever there was a more brilliant
and successful military movement, we
would like for someone to point out where
we will find it in history. In our judg?
ment the battles around Santiago were
equally as brilliant and remarkable as
were the naval victories of Dewey and
and Schley. The men who criticise Shaf?
ter are either stupid or envious.
STAND BY THE PRESIDENT.
There aie very few intelligent men in
the land who do not approve of the course
of President McKinley in connection with
our war with Spain and treatment of Cu?
ban aflairs. They now see that his effort
to delay hostilities was patriotic and his
stern resolution not to recognize the in
eurgent government of Cuba was eminent?
ly wi^e. It will be remembered that
many of the Congressmen who sought to
precipitate action in the negotiations with
Spain and voted against the policy of the
Administration on every occasion are ask?
ing the people to re-elect them to the next
Congress. It must be conceded that such
representatives were either moved by a
partisan desire to embarrass or were in?
fluenced by unsound judgment. There
were only a few Republicans in the House
of Representatives who united with the
almost solid Democratic minority in its
antagonism to President McKinley's wise
policy?the majority of the Republicans
stood by him all the time.
If the people desire to support the Pres?
ident in his war policy, it will be very
wrong to vote for and help elect men to
Congress who will be brought under the
same influences and be directed by the
same leadership that at the last session of
Congress voted for every resolution that
was calculated to embarrass the Adminis?
There will be many important measures
that vn ill be brought before the next Con?
gress growing out of the war, as well as
measures that affect the economic and
financial' policies of our government.
This being true, it will be very unwise for
the people to elect a Congress that would
be hostile to an Administration that has
shown its self so capable and patriotic,
i The people should stand by the President;
and the most certain way of doing so is to
elect men to Congress who are sincere
friends of the Administration and will
stand by its policy.
THEY SEE II NOW.
It is amusing but also gratifying to note
that the Democratic press of the country,
with almost practical unanimity, now ad?
mits that it would have been a terrible
mistake for our government to have re?
cognized the independence of Cuba and
the insurgent government of that island.
The admission carries with it an acknowl?
edgement that Mr. Bryan and the Demo?
cratic representatives in Congress were
greatly at fault in their etlort to force
President McKinley and the Republicans
in Congress to recognize the insurgent
government. It is also an admission that,
if the Democratic representatives, who
voted almost solidily for such recognition,
were influenced by partisan motives they
were guilty of a ciime that is unpardon?
able aud one which the honest people of
' the country should not forgive. If, upon
the other band, the Democratic represen?
tatives acted from mistaken judgment,
1 it is only one more proof of the utter lack
of statesmanship in the Democratic party
and the dangers that would follow its re
itoration to power. If Mr. Bryan could
have had his way if Mr. Bailey, of Texas
had been listened to, if the solid Demo?
cratic representation in Congress had suc?
ceeded in its efforts the United States
would have committed the folly of recog?
nizing a government that did not exist, or,
if it existed, was not worthy of recognition.
The frank acknowledgement of the
( Democratic press that President Mc?
Kinley and the Republican representa?
tives in Congress were right and that Mr.
Bryan and his followers in Congress were
so dangerously wrong ought to put peo
. pie to thinking. By the people we mean
i those honest men who have been blindly
following Democratic leadership that they
must now admit was either criminally
partisan or stupidly incapable.
THE ONLY WISE COURSE.
The Lynchburg News Eays: "From
many quarters come criticisms of Presi?
dent McKinley's instructions to General
Shafter for the government of the pro?
vince of Santiago de Cuba." We are glad
to note that the NewB is not one of those
quarters from which the criticism pro?
ceeds. Upon the contrary our esteemed
contemporary says: "The President has
pursued the only wise and practicable
course in dealing with the situation."
To this we add that the President has
shown wonderful wisdom in dealing with
the only situation. But for the extreme par
tisanry exhibited by the Bryanites in Con?
gress war with Spain might possibly have
been averted. It could certainly have been
postponed to a more convenient season.
For this President McKinley struggled,
but his wise determination was defeated
by partisan Congressmen. Those who
questioned his motives and wisdom at the
beginning pjf the trouble are the ones who
are now disposed to criticise his policy in
the management of conquered territory. I
The responsibility of the conduct of the
war has been forced on the President,
and he will have the courage and good
Kenne to deal with every situation and con
ilition tiiat accompanies and will follow
the war. The honest, thinking men o
the country take in the situation anil are
upholding the President.
THE PORTER RECOGNIZED HIM.
The reporter of the Bristol Times w ho
visited .Marion the day the Republican
convention was held and reported it to the
Times, in his report said: "The asylum
people were ready for us, and evidently
expecting 118, for when the train slopped
at Marion a poiter for the asylum grabbed
the woman by the ami and with a wave
of his hand to the balanct qf im veiled out,
"every body right this way for the asy?
The asylum porter evidently knows a
lunatic when he sera one. And after
reading the Times reporter's account of
the convention, which was reproduced in
last week's Clinch Valley News,we arc not
astonished that the asylum porter spotted
the Times reporter immediately as one of
the ] ersons expected at the asylum.
Thh platform on winch W. F. Khea is
running for Congress condemns and criti?
cises every policy of the Republican party
and of President McKinley's administra?
tion, except the couduct of the war. The
platform would have criticised the war
policy of McKinley if its framers had
dared to do so. Policy alone made the
war plank of that platform what it is.
The Pulaski platform on which Khea is
running for Congress declares for State
banks. The Democratic party in this
district is for "wild cat" money as well as
cheap silver money. The old voters of the
country can tell the young men what
"wild cat" money is.
Gahma is threatening to cease co-opera?
ting with General Shafter. If he don't co?
operate and better than he did in the
tightsat Santiago, the sooner he withdraws
the better. The United States govern?
ment will save many rations if he dots go.

the country would be ruined if McKinley
was elected and the gold standard pre?
vailed. How do you like the ruin.friendE?

It is amusing to hear Democrats try to
account for the improved condition of the
country. They give every renson but
the true one; which is the restoration of u
Republican policy in our government.

unpleasant situation in which he may lind
This is true of a most striking episode
in his present Asiatic experience which
occurred the other day. It has kept the
German Admiral guessing ever since and
has sent over continents and under oceans
telegraph messages flashing with reafiir
mation that the Government he repre?
sents is the linn friend of the United States,
and that henceforth the most ample as?
surance of this fact will be given to our
naval representatives on the borders of
the Yellow Sea.
There are some British sea dogs at Ma?
nila who are evidently of the breed of
Captain Lorraine, who twenty-five years
ago threatened Santiago with bombard?
ment if the Virginius massacre was not
halted. The episode of Von Diederichs
was the reply of one of these, Captain
Chichester, of the British warship Immor
talite, when the German Admiral asked
him what he would do if the Germans
were to interfere in Admiral Dewey's pro?
gramme. "There is only one man who
knows what I would do, and his name is
Dewey," was the Briton's reply.
It required this emphatic yetidiplomatic
declaration to recall to the German com?
mander an idea of what he might expect
in case of unwarranted interference with
our plans. And the answer seems to have
produced an effect elsewhere in Geiman
quartere. Almost simultaneous with this
story from Hong Kong comes the declara?
tion that Berlin has reassured Washing?
ton of its friendship and neutrality. This
is both interesting and hopeful. With
this full understanding of the situation on
the part of Germany our policy in the
Philippines will still continue its firm and
unwavering advance in the fulfillment of
our high purposes. Meantime there con?
tinues to be exposed metaphorically on
the outer walls of Manila the expressive
notice, "Beware of the Dog."

Here are two interesting incidents :
At Lexington, Ky., the other night,
Ben Lucy, a German, remarked to Major
Sam Morgan, a wellknown horse man,
that he hoped that the GermanB would
drive Dewey out of Manila. Without
waiting to discuss the question, the Major
knocked Lucy down. Major Morgan was
a gallant Confederate soldier, and says
that he will gladly pay a fine for hitting
a foreigner who would thus offer an insult
to our country.
During the Confederate reunion in At
lanta a picture of Robert E. Lee was dis?
played in a store window. A Yankee
mountaineer, who poned that way, shook
hid fist at the picture ami declared his in?
tention to bespatter it with mud. Several
Confederate veterans who were standing
by dared him to carry out bis threat, but
in the midst of the parley a man in citi?
zens clothes stepped forward and said:
"Gentlemen, I beg you to let me officiate
on this occasion. I was born in the North.

soldier. I can and will whip any man

Wilmington "News" (Rep )?!
William McKinley, as commander of
the land and naval forces of the United
States, has displayed consummate good
judgment and firmness in dealing with
Spain. lie has in no way hampered or
interfered with the,men in the held, all
of whom he trusts to the fullest extent
?and therein lies the secret of the steady
march of victory.
Upon two occasions at least the Presi?
dent has been called upon to exercise his
firmness, and he has not hesitated. lie is
a man of peuce, yet he is an able warrior.
He longs for the end, yet he does not pro?
pose to dally or temporize with the Span?
ish agents. He intends to prosecute the
war humanely and vigorously.
When the end comes?and may it come
soon?it will be set down to the credit of
William McKinley that be performed his
duties faithfuliy and with a marvelous
display of reason and sound judgment.
He acts quietly and with determination.
He is a man of humane instincts and he
is anxious to bring about the desired re?

has been, and it still, the right man for

The world will discover that, under a
republic, military administration of con?
quered territory can be maintained as
wisely, as strenuously and as long as the
like administration of like territory by any
other government in the world. The pro?
clamation sets our Constitution over con?
quered territory of tbe United States, and
sharplv differentiates such territory from
States themselves. Territory is a posses?
sion with which we can constitutionally
do anything whatever, as a nation, thai
we please. If this fact was not generally
known, the war, as a school teacher, is
making it known m an immistakable man?

peculiar feat performed by Lieutenant
Hugh S. Wise, son of John S. Wise, of
New Y'ork, and formerly of Virginia.
Lieutenant Wise was among those who
charged up the hill at San Juan.
The correspondent of the Press says:
"He charged up the hill at the head of his
company in the face of Mauser bullets,
thick as hail and with shrapnel shells
bursting all around him, and carried in
his right hand his sword and in his left a
rapid-tiring camera of his own device. He
took twelve views on his film plates while
he was running and when he and the
standing; remnant of his company were" in
possession at the top of the hill, and the
Spaniards were Uying down the other,
Lieutenant Wise turned to a sergeant and
"I think I got some pretty lively pic?
tures this time. If there was only some
ice in this sunburned country I'd devel?
op them right now."
"Then he gave his camera to n private I
to guard and resumed fighting. If that
isn't bravery, coolness,, nerve and au?
dacity combined, I never heard of. them.
And everybody who knows him will say
that it was 'just like Hughey Wise.' "
